Congratulations to our two Pacific teams who have been accepted as finalists in this year’s Mayor’s Telstra Technology Challenge.


Senior College students, Cameron Heeney, Harry Stone and Liam Dines are the iMood Team. Their idea is to develop a phone app which can be tailored by the user to bring up positive, happy images when the user is feeling down.

Senior College students, Ryan Lancaster, Keaton Dines and Ben Summers are The Grass Dudes. Their idea is to develop an attachment that converts a garden variety whipper-snipper into a tiny mower for hard to reach grassed areas.

Both teams are to be commended for their original ideas! Now comes the challenging part… A month of weekly sessions dedicated to product development and marketing began this Wednesday 19th April at the Sparks Bureau in Maroochydore. The Mayor officially opened the competition and introduced the local entrepreneurs that will guide the teams in their development.

Watch this space for more news over the coming weeks!
